The theme of the 15th M.A.P. International CEO Conference 2017, “ASEAN in Business: Building Partnerships in a Growth Network,” helped shape the PwC M.A.P. 2017 CEO Survey.
With the goal of working together to make the ASEAN integration successful, we asked our leaders to share their views on the growth prospects of the Philippines and the rest of ASEAN, as well as their plans to further expand their businesses and address the challenges along the way.
It is encouraging to know that our leaders are moving towards forming more partnerships, both formal and informal – not only to accelerate their growth, but to help the country and other entrepreneurs as well.
This year, we are also featuring the stories of key business leaders to share the lessons they learned from their partnerships and from their experience in expanding their businesses. Two of our government leaders share their vision for the country, and their plans to make their vision a reality. We hope that this report will inspire our leaders to reimagine the possible – not only in the Philippines, but throughout ASEAN.
